After my last column, four readers responded with letters to the editor. One of them was thoughtful. The other three not so much. None, however, while seemingly taking exception to my thoughts on CRT addressed that subject. Three of the four letters engaged only in attempted personally demeaning remarks.
Marxism functions by pitting groups against one another. Originally, it was the “capitalists” against the “workers.” Our modern-day leftists have simply modified the “struggle.” Pitting today’s management against employees seems to have been identified as impractical in the western world because of the strong, more wealthy middle class than existed in European countries early last century. As a result, leftists have simply ID’d two new targets — Black people vs. Caucasians.
Words such as freshman and upperclassman are being eliminated because they “can be interpreted as both sexist and classist.” Of course, they can — when you really, really twist it. Who knew? Is that not enough? Nope! They also have a problem with the words “junior” and “senior.”
I remain convinced that compliance truly is the easiest pathway to avoiding conflict — or minimizing escalation of an already testy situation with police.
Who in their right minds messes with someone who legally carries a firearm? To all who have, what were you thinking?
After diversification promotion was well underway, too many people began to accentuate the differences instead of similarities. Then came divisiveness. Now that we’ve all been categorized and pigeonholed, they promote the differences which tends to keep us from uniting.
I’m tiring of leftists’ lies impacting elections. Four years of lies and charges hounded Trump. Shameless lies.
Out of one side of his mouth he’s singing “Kumbaya.” Out of the other he’s calling Republican governors ‘Neanderthals.” He says that he wants to play nice, but he can’t pull it off. Perhaps one of his supporters can send Joe a copy of the old Dale Carnegie book “to Win Friends and Influence People.”
Sorry, but in the grand scheme of things, Woods just ain’t that important. Nothing, including golf, depends upon his survival or God forbid yet another “comeback.”
I looked at numerous definitions. Try as I might, I could find not one authority that did not use words such as “a public official,” “a holder of a public office,” “any federal officer,” or “a government official” when addressing the subject of any impeachment. The question is, does Trump meet any of those descriptions? Answer? Not since Jan. 20 he hasn’t. Trump is a private citizen. No private citizen may be impeached. Period.
“American flag desecration” at the Capitol was mentioned. I guess it depends upon who’s doin’ the desecratin’, eh? We don’t hear such complaints from the left about Antifa “celebrations” where such occurrences are commonplace.
Many leftists talk about the divisiveness of others and the need to bring the country together. Biden has expressed agreement. Then they cancel the others — get people fired, close their businesses and encourage boycotts. You want divisive? Watch the cancel culture at work.
At issue is the simple fact that some people who are not medical doctors prefer (sometimes insist) to be called “doctor.” The fact of the matter is that many people find this off putting.
Trump taught us that we can vocalize what’s on our minds without having to sugarcoat it. This, in fact, may serve to mentally toughen up those whose sensitivities could stand a few calluses.
Slavery existed thousands of years before this country was a glimmer in anyone’s eye. American Indians held slaves. That’s a fact. The English, Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese and others introduced slaves to this country — not Americans.
